영어 Through Entertainment #7: The Jedi Mind Trick

A Long Time Ago, In a Galaxy Far, Far Away...
Star Wars (1977) is the most famous science fiction movie of all time. The brainchild of George Lucas, Star Wars still, incredibly, lives via cartoons, books, and movies. The original Star Wars is actually called Star Wars IV: A New Hope. While other movies have grossed more at the box office, George Lucas created an entire industry which began with Star Wars, including the creation of companies vital to film-making.

Star Wars Created the Phrase "Jedi mind trick"
There are many famous scenes in Star Wars, and one of them is here, which is the first time that we see evidence of the "Jedi mind trick."

What Does "Jedi mind trick" mean?
Obi-wan Kenobi, a Jedi knight, has used brain power to make the stormtroopers (the armed guards) believe what he (Obi-wan) wants them to believe. Today, the "Jedi mind trick" is another way of saying that you have fooled someone into believing what you want that person to believe. Today, you can still hear the phrase "Jedi mind trick" in movies or on TV.
